Odalisk By Name Obelisk By Nature

CZWG has designed this tower for Landsdowne Road in Croydon which if built will be one of the tallest buildings in the London borough.

The scheme called Odalisk features 31 and 51 storey towers joined together via a shared podium that will combine creating a high-rise mixed use complex. The shorter tower will accommodate a 200 bedroom hotel and 100 serviced apartments whilst the taller one will have 25,000 square metres of office space and 360 residential units.

The scheme is made distinctive thanks to the several layers of glazing on the building, some recessed and others protruding that combine together to create the pattern of curving lines wrapping around the frontage of both towers.

It will replace Marco Polo House and the YMCA Building and stand opposite Croydon's recent Jury's Inn but despite it's great height the 350 million project from developer Guildhouse-Rosepride is set to be only one of a series of tall buildings that will be popping up in Croydon over the coming years.

These include a 35 storey building on the Transport for London off Station Road, 19 and 11 storey buildings developed by Barratt immediately south of the TFL site, a 35 storey tower above West Croydon Station and a 27 storey building to the south west that it will share a public plaza with.

Howard Holdings are also working on what will potentially be three towers up to 50 storeys for the multi-storey car park off Wellesley Road, on the site of Lunar House the Pacific Group have 38 and 64 storey buildings masterplanned whilst Apollo House could be the site of a further 40 storey building.

Much is said of Croydon being London's third skyline but if even a fraction of these buildings go up then these claims will once again hold water.
